Fiouna Catering Is Opening Fiouna's Persian Fusion Cuisine in the Fenway's Restaurant Row
The folks behind a Perisan catering company in Newton are opening a restaurant in the Fenway's "restaurant row."
The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog is reporting (via the City of Boston website) that the owners of Fiouna Catering on California Street are looking to open a dining spot on Peterborough Street in the space where Umi had been (Umi was destroyed in a 2009 fire that took out most of restaurant row). The article mentions that a meeting is taking place tomorrow at Boston City Hall concerning the acquisition of a common victualler license for the spot, which may be called Fiouna's Restaurant. [May 15 update: The new spot is called Fiouna's Persian Fusion Cuisine.]
Based on their takeout menu in Newton, Fiouna's Persian Fusion Cuisine may be offering soups, salads, kabobs, stews, rice dishes, and more.
[May 15 update: Eater Boston states that Fiouna's Persian Fusion Cuisine is now open.]
The address for this new restaurant in the Fenway is 90 Peterborough Street, Boston, MA, 02215. Their catering website can be found at http://www.fiouna.com/
